Michael R. Green (mug shot TCSO)

A man from Hollister waived formal arraignment in circuit court yesterday (04-14-11) and pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges related to an alleged drunk driving car crash last September that killed two women from Branson.

Taney County prosecutor Jeff Merrell says Michael R. Green, 26, had a blood alcohol level of over .18 when he ran a stop sign and crashed into a rock bluff at Highway 248 and Branson Hills Pkwy.  Killed in the crash were twenty four year-old Jessica A. Jenkins and twenty five year-old Nicole L. Porter.

When first responders arrived on the scene of the crash, they allegedly smelled alcohol on Green's breath. According to court documents, Green allegedly told a Highway Patrol Trooper he was “showing out” for the girls in the car and was “going too fast.”  Those same documents say he tested positive for alcohol.

Green was charged as a prior and persistent offender because of convictions of first degree tampering and receiving stolen property in 2007.

In February of this year family members of Nicole Porter filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Green.  It appears from online court records that the family of Jessica Jenkins have settled a wrongful death lawsuit with Green.

Green's next court appearance is scheduled for June 9th.

From what I hear, Mr Greene has been practicing the art of taking it in the butt to prepare himself for prison. But in all reality I did hear through resources he is not remorseful he blames the girls because they were trashed and messing with his flip up cd player in his car. Tell Bubba hello from the outside world for us Mikey...LOL
